OUTFREAKINGSTANDING!! I would have been willing to pay extra for them....now if only they were available in Competition Gray. Oh well....if they only come in black, that'll do!
What color car are you wanting? On the Red I am just not feeling the black wheel.

Now, if that wheel were available in chrome or polished, that is another story.

I never noticed before but Scott said that the SSX wheel was the polished one with the space in between the spokes cut out.

They won't!

Silver/machine faced wheels are optional.

No cross-drilled rotors - not needed!

Scott I saw two piece rotors on the demo car. Is this going to make it into production?

Not sure about the Booooss .. however it would be so much better if it wasn't standard in BLACK!!!! ... I'd take polished silver as standard ..

Since I assumed the SSX wheels would be the optional, lighter weight wheel, I wonder if the assumption that it's a lighter wheel is true.

Do you guys still think the SSX style wheel will be lighter? Both are forged I believe. Are the guys who will be now paying extra for the machined/polished wheel only doing so due to preference of style and finish, not performance?

What part about optional silver/machined wheels do you not understand?

I do understand that it may suck a bit for those that preferred the machined wheels as standard and now have to pay a bit for their preferred wheel choice.

The thing is, we don't know yet what that charge may be. It could be a "small" charge (similar to the $500 they charge for polished wheels) or it could be a sizable charge. Just like almost all of the rest of our questions, we'll have to wait and see on that one.

I asked Scott about the wieght of the rims and if there was a differance, he said they weigh the same.

As far as why they went with the SSX rims I got the impression from our
conversation, but not in these exact words from Scott that they were less costly to manaufacture. Therefore these got the nod, which makes perfect sence due to the fact they are trying to keep the costs down on this car so that the consumer can have the ZL1 come in at a base price to be competitive.

Now the big question will be how much more will the polished wheels cost
as an option. The SSX wheels were my original choice of the two rims,
however after seeing them, I am now leaning towards the polished wheels.
The reason for my change of heart is that the SSX wheels just have a
plastic look to them and with all the plastic that the modern cars currently
have on them already, I kinda like the polished look more. I guese just call
me old school when it comes to the rims.

I have never cared much for black wheels. I just don't like the way a dark wheel looks in combination with a black tire.

I will definitely be ordering the polished wheels that were on the ZL1 at Chicago. I hope that the polished wheels won't be a major (much more than $500) up charge.

If they are the same weight, then I guess I will be getting the optional ones. I hate black rims, but if they were super light, i would just get them media blasted and polished.

I am more a fan of the polished ones that have the ZL-1 entched into them.

Sweet that there is an option, though!

wow, this is good news! I was on the fence with this one personally. I do like the look of the black wheels but wouldn't have got them if they weighted more. I think black and red go good together but black and black! now where talking! I still like the look of the polished ones though! especially that ZL1 logo on them....hint...hint..

If I go with black and black, Vader II will be born! hahahahaha
